Wenger: Cazorla and Wilshere back in weeks


Arsene Wenger has revealed that Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla are running again after months out with ankle and knee injuries respectively.

The midfield duo are now expected to be back in action in March, hopefully enough time for each man to get up to speed and showcase their respective talent ahead of EURO 2016.

“They are back running,” confirmed Wenger on Thursday. “They are on a fitness programme now so it means it is not a question of months anymore, it is a question of weeks for them to be back.”

The boss also gave an update on Danny Welbeck, who continued his comeback from a long-term knee problem with a run out for the under-21s last week, hinting at a return in the FA Cup in ten days time.

“He is doing well, it is a bit early for him maybe but he is now back to full power in training. It is a big possibility [he could be involved against Hull next week].

“We gave him one or two days recovery after the under-21 game, but now he is back in full training. He has worked very hard and he is fit.”

There was also an update on the fitness of the rest of the squad ahead of Sunday’s game with Leicester.

“It is a similar squad available to last week, we are still early in the week but we should have everyone available.

“Of course Rosicky [is out], and Wilshere is not ready. But everyone else should be available.”
